Which engine and transmission on your 2008? You don't hear of any real chronic issues aside from maybe some interior and suspension noises here and there and your occasional power assist steering issue on 2005's. The only issue I've heard of on 2007 2.2L, autos is a crazy surging you get when the torque converter tries to lock. Mine does it and I've heard of about 3 others who have the same concern.

I haven't had any suspension problems or problems of any other kind..SO FAR. As far as i know my torque converter doesn't do that.When i get up & go everything does what it's supposed to do,believe me when i say it get's up & goes, wheww hold on to your seat!!! When i steer it's just perfect.I have a 2.2L Automatic.

What are the special features not found on regular Cobalt's?

There are no features on the Special Edition that can't be had on other cobalt lines. The difference really is anti-lock brakes and special design 16 inch wheels. The wheels are unique to the special edition although they are only 4 bolt pattern unlike the 5 bolt pattern on the LT-2 with sports appearance package. The other difference would be the shark tooth stripes , but most dealers order the car without them. My dealer has 3 special ediation cobalts and says there very hard to sell, because of the higher price tag and limited options. There basically LT-1's with 16 inch wheels and anti-lock brakes.

hey man i recently got in an accident and my 03 cavalier sport was totaled.
in any case it looks like ill be getting a cobalt, 07 or 08 is not decided just yet, prob an 08.
do all cobalts have the 4 bolt pattern? i have a set of tires/rims that i bought for my cavvy but the bolt pattern is 5.
also the car i might get is navy blue with the white/silver racing stripes. it has a wing and a diff grill setup etc. i understand it it below the ss model but is it just below? what is the lt-2? all lt's ive seen dont have a wing or grill or anything this one has in the showroom but ur post suggests its still below an lt2?
thank you kindly

ah bugger it seems the ss are just outa my price range to
the special edition is in my range tho so i might settle, maybe sell my rims and get new ones with a four bolt pattern.
maybe i can squeeze out an ss, are there any ss's models with the special paint scheme's?

The 2008 LT-2 cobalt also has 5 bolt pattern rims as well as the SS, at a much cheaper price.

The LT2 is a loaded model with just a few options.
